Kanye West Live in Beijing

[Photos: sina.com.cn]

Kanye West Glow in the Dark tour at Beijing Worker's Gymnasium Saturday night, November 1, 2008

Mr. West was in the building. His swagger, in the hundred thousand trillions. Uh Uh, You can't tell him nothin. Uh Uh, Wait... excuse me? Was you sayin somethin? Well apparently someone said something, because Kanye never uttered a single profane word throughout his entire performance Saturday night in Beijing. (They didn't even let him say Jesus)

In town for his "Glow In the Dark Tour" Kanye made history as the biggest name to hit the Capital, city thus far. His performance was rock solid! Unfortunately the sound was a bit off and the set up of the show was straight whack. It was the first seating only concert I have ever been to in my life. A very unusual concept! Literally everyone was seated. Including right in front of the stage where the were no more then 5o VIP seats. At one point... we were actually told by the group behind us to sit down because they couldn't see.

Aside from the pathetic fans and the fact that the venue didn't serve alcohol, dancing was not allowed. (I know, don't even try and make sense out of it) Thankfully not everyone conformed to the "no dancing" rule and by about mid way through the show a good majority of fans were on there feet bobbing along to the music. Except for of course the V.I.P.'s in front of the stage who were told by security to sit every time the stood up or tried to dance.

Tickets prices ranged from 180 rmb - 2,000 rmb (26$-300$) Aside from those who paid 300 bucks for floor seats (V.I.P.'s), the cost of one's ticket was basically irrelevant due to the stadium style seating. Un-fazed by the lack of audience participation the Louie Vuitton Don came real strong and finished equally as hard. The live band coupled with amazing visual elements was a nice touch! Definitely no Madison Square Garden show but all in all it was an experience that will surely not be forgotten.
